Power supplies are generally the most efficient at about 40 to 60% load. You could save some money by getting a smaller power supply, but it won't hurt anything unless you're not hitting at least 40% load.

ok guys. just i might be looking for SLI or crossfire, and on the 6770, it quotes "minimum 500w" so 750 may be over kill, but thanks anyway :)
